SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes forward and current Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma surprised his mother with a house.

During the journey that Kyle Kuzma has been on, he has always brought up his mom and now he surprised her with a new house.

ESPN’s Eric Woodyard posted a screenshot of Kuzma’s mother’s Instagram post, showing her appreciation for the house she received from her son.

“From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate you @Kuz for all you do for me,” she wrote. “I tell you often just know I really mean it. And I want the world to know what a great son you are! Thank you for this.”

Kuzma is in his first season with the Wizards after being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers in the Russell Westbrook deal. In 44 games played this season, Kuzma is averaging 15.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.
